My name is Bill Blumke and I’m new to Atkins High School where I hope to teach various science and social studies courses. Previously, I taught science and social studies courses in several schools in Guilford County for over three decades. I also taught many courses in three departments at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I was graduated multiple times from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I completed programs in several science and social science disciplines on multiple levels. Before becoming a teacher, I was a paratrooper in the US Army Airborne and later a branch manager for Northwestern Financial Corporation. I strive to encourage students to be life-long learners with broad educational interests.
